The Anglo-French Art and Travel Society, in consultation with a number of experts is arranging to hold this autumn a really comprehensive loan exhibition of French Nineteenth Century Art.
The exhibition, which will be on view at the New Burlington Galleries, London, from October 1 to 31, will comprise a representative collection of Masterpieces lent by museums and collectors in Europe and America. Only the finest examples of the work of Cezanne, Corot, Courbet Daumier, Degas, Delacroix, Gauguin, Van Gogh, Ingres, Lautrec, Manet, Monet, Pissarro, Renoir, Hnry Rousseau, Seurat and Sisley will be included.
The exhibition is designed to illustrate every phase of these great painters, and the organisers have secured in nearly every case pictures not hitherto exhibited in England. It is felt that in thus exhibiting important works unknown to the British public an attempt will be made not only to do justice to this period of art but also to satisfy those to whom the lack of a great international exhibition at Burlington House this winter would otherwise come as a serious deprivation.
A number of lectures will be given during the exhibition by authorities on French painting, amongst them several French experts. Special arrangements will be made for educational facilities for students.
